About the Course

Learn how to make a traditional round basket using English willow. The day will start with instruction on types of willow, choosing, buying and planting your own materials. You will learn at least 3 different weaves plus a border technique. You will take home a completed basket which could be used for serving bread or many other things. This course is part of the art and craft week so you can book on other days as well.

Bring a friend!

For the last twenty years Deb has been running willow and basket weaving workshops all over the UK and Canada; working with the National Trust, English Heritage, the Royal Horticultural Society, Nova Scotia Agricultural College, Burghley Horse Trials, the Scout Jamboree, plus many charities and schools. Deb has constructed willow structures in private gardens as well as building fences and gardens at the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows.
